When Dennis Brown stepped down from the Town Council on Dec. 1, he had completed 20 years of service to the Town of Fountain Hills. Brown was appointed to his council seat in May 2009 following the passing of Councilman Keith McMahan. He was re-elected to two full terms. Previous to serving on the council, Brown sat on the Planning and Zoning Commission beginning in December 2001. He acted as chairman of the commission for several years.
Brown came to Arizona in 1994 and moved to Fountain Hills in 1996. He was in the construction business and had a plan to start his own business, which he opened in 1999 as Echelon Builders.
“Moving to Arizona was the best decision I ever made,” Brown said. “Fountain Hills has been good to me.”
